WHO COULD POSSIBLY OPPOSE UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE? Who could possibly oppose universal healthcare?  Universal health insurance makes sense (Medicare for all). Every other citizen-centered society has universal health care. The USA does not. Why? Follow the money: Who profits from stopping citizens from having adequate, affordable medical coverage? Let’s look at the compensation of people who have almost unlimited money to spend protecting their interests at…

America: Blindfolded and Placed Against the Wall

Jan 11th, 2020 Uncategorized EdwardBerger 3 min read

During the holiday break, we traveled on a road paralleling THE BORDER WALL, a great scar on the landscape and a steel barrier being built as a tribute to Trump. It gives the middle finger to all those who choose freedom, morality, decency, and love. The Wall is a path of destruction 50 feet wide across pristine lands. A horrible manifestation of evil sprouting 26-30…

What kind of education will our children need to be successful in their future; a world filled with artificial intelligence. Ten students gather regularly around a campfire, to experience community and to explore their ideas about what the school of the future should look like. Their discussions lead them to explore skills that will prepare them to control AI, be successful, and exemplify the highest…

NON-ELECTED WEALTH-DRIVEN FAMILIES AND INDIVIDUALS OWN OUR GOVERNMENT

Hey, I’m blogging again. My last blog was in June. I am completing research and writing a new book exploring the challenges presented by AI and machine intelligence and the evolution of our education system so that we prepare humans to use and control artificial intelligence. Since 2016, Dan Kenley and I have recorded over thirty hours of podcast interviews on our Insights Into Education…

WHAT MUST HAPPEN

Sessions must be removed as Attorney General of the United States.  He openly lied to Congress many times at his confirmation hearing. These lies were televised and obvious to the American people.  He is responsible for acts and statements of racial bias, not limited to his investment in privatizing prisons and incarcerating persons of color.  He often acts against the majority will of the American…

A NATION THAT FEARS ITS CHILDREN?

Mar 23rd, 2018 The Billionaires attempt to destroy America EdwardBerger 3 min read

Here we are again. The murders caused by the NRA-GOP-Gun manufacturers corruption have terrorized America for over a generation. Young people do not see adults working effectively to stop these crimes against humanity. In reality, those working to change our society, starting with the Columbine generation, have learned that they have no power, and in fact, that the forces of this evil have blocked their…

REMEMBERING GEORGE AND SUE KELLY

Mar 5th, 2018 Uncategorized EdwardBerger 2 min read

George was a powerhouse who worked dawn-to-dusk.  In 1968 he was in his seventies but seemed a young fifty. Everywhere he went, his worn shovel was in his hand. When he wasn’t setting a fruit tree of jabbing at a noxious weed he was following a wall and unearthing an ancient room. At night, sitting within the cool, thick walls of their beautiful home, we…

AS AN EDUCATOR I’VE HELD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF EVIDENT

Let’s start with a no-brainer:  No Education Without Immediate And Practical Application. That sums up all that I know about learning, teaching, and education. All that I have observed and found true since I began teaching in 1961. It is the key to understanding why the education systems have been failing our children.  It is the key to understanding why educators who have attempted to…

THEY HAVE EARS BUT REFUSE TO HEAR

Hey irate fellow citizens. Have you listened to the majority of those who voted for Trump? Not the crazies or the religious fanatics, but the great majority of Trump voters. They are not evil, immoral, ignorant people. They did not vote for Trump because he abuses women, is a business failure, is a hate-filled creep and a narcissistic animal.  No, the majority do not like…

WHAT HAS BEEN ALLOWED IS THE INCURSION OF AN OLIGARCHY

In my last blog written in July 2017, I opened with the following observation: Within the core of our freedoms, lie the avenues powerful individuals use to take away the rights of citizens and the controls of government designed and evolved to serve all.  Americans are now aware of the reality that subversive forces have made excessive headway in destroying our rights. What has been…
